Hi to all,

I think that here there is some audiophile...

Do you use AAC file on your HIFI or only lossless (FLAC/ALAC) or CD Audio?

Actually i'm trying to make a good ABX and I admit... I can't find difference with the MP3/AAC file and CD... I don't find differences.


What is your experience?

Do you use AAC file on a 1.000 dollars HiFi system or you will prefer FLAC?

Thanks

Sorry, I had created some confusion.

The conclusion of the ABX is simple, no difference from AAC and CD. (0 track identified)

But... when my girlfriend know what are the FLAC, she tried to hear again and she tell they have more dynamic.

My conclusion?

Most of the audiophile are rich of placebo effect... only if one know the original track is capable to recognize it.
